- Read 15-20 minutes per day.
- Keep a variety of books on hand.
- Discuss the story as you read.
- Read out loud using funny voices and act the story out. (This helps to keep a child’s attention)
- Point out words as you read.
- Create Flash Cards to Identify letters. If you have mastered letter recognition, then create flash cards that teach letter sounds. If that is mastered start teaching your child to sound out words. Helpful hint…..Learn to recognize 3 letter sounds and once that is mastered add 3 more until all 26 are mastered.

Please keep in mind, the earlier in a child’s life you begin to read, the better your child will be. Make reading fun, engaging, and ultimately make a solid academic foundation in your child’s education.
